“Draupathi feels like a bad dream for me as the director didn’t tell the entire script to me. End of the day, the decision is going to be mine and I will be ready to face the consequences. I literally don’t know anything about politics. I don’t have any connection with politics. I just want to do my job with perfection” Sheela said in the interview.
“If you tell me what kind of job I am going to do, the decision about accepting it and rejecting is going to be made by me. In the “Draupathi”, we had a little bit of miscommunication. No one could travel in a good path forever, some downfalls will be there. I see Draupathi as my lesson” she further said.
“I came to know about the kind of reception “Draupathi” received only after the release of the film. I didn’t about this side of the society. While I was studying in hostel, we didn’t ask our fellow students about their caste. I never faced these kind of discriminations and it’s a new experience for me” the actress made it clear and went on to say that she is not answerable to anyone for acting in “Draupathi”.

“If I fall down and get injured, it is me who should take care of myself. I see it in a positive way. It helps me to grow further and I don’t have anything to do with the opinion makers” Sheela concluded.
Draupathy film released in theatres on 28th of February of 2020 and ibecame a subject to controversy for the message it carried. The film which had actor Richard in the lead role became a commercial success as it was reportedly made with a budget that is less than a crore. The “Pazhaya Vannarapettai” fame Mohan directorial is highly believed to be a caste based low budget film against a particular community. However, the filmmaker firmly said that his film exposes the fake-love drama that takes place in the society.
